Avant-garde music collective The Residents have unveiled an Ultimate Box Set in celebration of their 40th anniversary. The set includes 100 Residents related products, including each release, all DVDs, each of the CD-ROM projects, and a limited edition Top Hat/Eye mask. Oh, and everything is packed inside of a 28 cubic ft. refrigerator. The price tag is a cool $100,000 and only ten of these are being made. They go on sale Dec. 25th, 2012, so if you happen to have that kind of cash burning a hole in your pocket and you’re the biggest Residents fan this side of the Mississippi, go forth and conquer. Otherwise, look on in shock.
Oh, and one other thing: the band has announced that there will be a 1-of-a-kind box that will be sold as well. The contents are completely under wraps but there is a price tag attached: $5 million dollars. I don’t know what’s in there but unless it’s a contract giving the rights to the masters to the purchaser, I can’t see how it would be worth it.
You can watch a video for the Ultimate Box Set below. READ MORE
Babymetal is back! The Japanese pop-metal group fronted by three preteen girls has a new song entitled Like, which will hit iTunes on March 7th. In anticipation of this release, the group has released a video of a shortened version of the song. You can check it out below.
has decided to take to their website
to tackle an ongoing rumor regarding the possibility of an upcoming 3D movie, which they indeed confirm. That being said, there is no confirmation on what type
of movie it will be, only that they are in the very early stages of pre-production and that the film will be released sometime in 2013.
I’m somewhat at a loss as to what type of movie they are going to release. A 3D concert? Meh, doesn’t really do anything for me. A 3D documentary? Nope. A 3D mockumentary in the style of Spinal Tap? No way in hel…yes. Yes please.
Update: The Soundcloud page has gone offline. The moment it goes back up, I’ll refresh the links.
Remember that ridiculous cover of Iron Man done by William Shatner? If that wasn’t enough for you, you can now hear the entire album. There are covers of Bohemian Rhapsody, Twilight Zone, Learning To Fly, Spirit In The Sky, and many more. Check out the entire album here. READ MORE
When I think of stereotypical black metal, I think of ritualistic sacrifices involving lambs, virgins, sheep, babies, and other assorted meaty goodness.
